Where has time gone???

This last Friday, Braddock turned one. I can't believe how fast time goes by!! Just one year ago, I was carrying him inside my tummy. Yes, I know I was huge, but I loved it! The excitement of him arriving was too much to handle.
I couldn't help but post this picture. Can you say HIDEOUS? Jim thought it would be good to look back on a photo like this. I think I said some pretty choice words to him for taking it, but now I look at it and think it's really funny. I'm having a massive contraction and haven't had my epideral yet.
After half an hour of pushing, Braddock arrived on September 21, 2006 at 12:34 PM. He was so chubby!!! 8 lbs! Jim thought that maybe it wasn't his child. He had dark olive skin and lots of thick black hair. We're not sure where that came from as both Jim and I we're both toe head babies, but we thought he was darling anyways. Below, is a picture of him looking at his daddy.
This was just a couple of minutes after he was born. He was so alert (and still a little purple). He had such a cute little personality though. I remember he just looked around at everything and sucked on his three little fingers. I love him.
Here we are a year later. We went to Ruby River on Friday for his birthday with his aunts Jenna & Alyssa. I know, like he had ANY idea what was going on. I wish he was staring at the camera because I rarely get a picture of just me and him. I love this little boy so much and am so grateful that Heavenly Father brought him to our home. He's the best!

Family Pictures

So I am a bad mom and just barely decided that it was time for Braddock to get some pictures taken of him. We took quite a bit of all of us. To my family: Please let me know what pictures you like the most and what size, so I can get them ordered. To those of you who are looking for a photographer: I highly reccommend the one we went to - Rebecca Carter. She did an awesome job! It took an arm and a leg from all of us to get Braddock to smile. I'm not sure how she captured him at the perfect time because he whined most of the time. I'll be posting her website on my blog on Friday if you want to see some of her work. Also, the pictures on the slide are a little blurry and I can't figure out why. No worries though, the actual photos are fantastic!

Is There Anything Better in Life than........

I would have to say NO. I'm so grateful for my hubbie, Jim and our sweet little boy, Braddock. They mean the world to me. Even though having a family means having more responsibilities, I wouldn't change it for anything! I love them to death! I took some more pics (shocker) that I couldn't resist showing!
CAN THIS FACE BE ANY CUTER??? I love those chubby cheeks and bright blue eyes.
Braddock has the sweetest ears. They are so small, but totally stick out! I don't know where he got them from, but I love them!
Last night, Jim and Braddock snoozed it out on the couch together! Braddock rarely falls asleep unless he is in his crib, so I had to take a picture of this. So precious.
I think this kid knows what a camera is.
Last Saturday, Jim's cousin Jamie and her dang cute little family came to visit us all the way from Cali! It was so nice to see them as we rarely ever get to. Their little boy, Jaxson is a crack-up and Braddock thinks he is the coolest thing ever. They had a lot of fun playing in Grandma Nelson's backyard together - Here's a picture of us moms and the babes.


So We Went and Had Another Ultrasound Yesterday, AND.......................

There is no doubt about it!
